THE INFLUENCE OF GAMBLING ON CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES IN THE REGION OF GORIŠKA Print E-mail

Nevenka Podgornik , Andrej Kovačič

Abstract
The discussion of social consequences of gambling includes also the influence of gambling on the occurrence of criminal activities. The start-point of the present article is based on criminological theories which explain causal-consecutive connection between crime and gambling. We performed an examination of relevant studies about the existence of correlation between gambling and crime and a comparison of statistical data about criminality in the region of Goriška with the regions where there is no gambling or it is present in a minor extent.

Keywords: gambling, criminality, region of Goriška, Slovenian regions
